eMusic Wire/10070392

ST. LOUIS - eMusicWire -- Connor Fiehler's first full-length album Generation Flee (https://connorfiehler.com/) will be released and available worldwide on Friday, May 22, 2020. Not only did Fiehler write all the songs and lyrics on the eight-track album he also is the main vocalist on all the tracks and performs a multitude of the instruments including guitar, bass, mandolin, and synths. The album showcases Fiehler's broad talent of playing heavy bluesy-rock riffs to grooving, languid, hip-swaying soul to folk to introspective, dream-pop, and more. A stripped-down live stream concert within the first two weeks of the album is in the works. At age 18, this St. Louis, Missouri musician has a dedication to his craft and has accomplished more than many musicians well beyond his years.

The bluesy, funk-rock "The One You're Using (https://connorfiehler.com/track/2347709/the-one...)" was the first single released from Generation Flee. Fiehler knew he wanted at least one song to feature another vocalist and when he saw long-time School of Rock companion Eve Rigby perform in December 2019 with Phi (https://www.facebook.com/stlphi/) "it inspired me to write this song specifically for her voice."
